The Ministry recalled that Hasidic pilgrims who do not abandon their attempts to get to Ukraine are still at the Novi Yarylovychi entry-exit checkpoint. People are provided with food and medicine.
As reported, Interior Minister Arsen Avakov had a meeting with representatives of the Hasidic community regarding the pilgrimage to Uman and called on the pilgrims to respect Ukrainian law.
